A video purportedly made by supporters of the Islamic State makes direct threats against Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg and Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey for combating terrorism on their Internet platforms.
The 25-minute propaganda video was released by a group calling itself “the sons of the Caliphate Army.” In it, photographs of both technology leaders are targeted by bullets. The video was spotted by Vocativ deep web analysts on the social media service Telegram, which is used by ISIS.
It wil be recalled that in January, the administration of U.S. President Barack Obama asked companies including Facebook and Twitter for help in the fight against terrorism.
That gathering took place as Obama announced a new counterterrorism task force to thwart extremists and their use of social media after recent deadly attacks in Paris and San Bernardino, California.
